Welcome to the final of three parts looking at Eastern Conference teams games remaining and subsequent fantasy breakdown.

 

At the Olympic break, all NHL teams had between 19 and 22 games remaining in the regular season. But not all games are created equal. In the Eastern Conference, one team (Atlanta) had 14 home games remaining, while another had only seven (Ottawa). One team had ten games remaining against teams that have 75 points or more, while another had only four left against the top teams.

 

All statistics below are as of the Olympic break. Here are the final five teams:

 

 

Philadelphia Flyers

Home (18-11-2)

Away (14-14-1)

Philadelphia has had an up and down season and now it looks like Emery will be out for the remainder of the season. The Flyers have 22 games remaining and 14 of them are against teams worse in the standings than themselves. They only have five games left against teams with 75 points or better.
